Look forward to seeing you all in 2015 if not sooner!

What you do with ABAM is exceptional! You let us feel like a big family. The high standard of science has the same level in friendship and fun. We met so nice colleagues from all over the world, and specially from Brazil, that we become more and more fans of this country, where -I am sure- Germany will leave its football (soccer) mark as world champion 2014...We are impatiently waiting for the next ABAM event.

Joachim Finckenstein, M.D. -- Germany

Thank you for your kind invitation to participate in this wonderful meeting. I know how hard it is to organize such a meeting and you did it very successfully.

Vakis Kontoes, M.D. -- Greece

If you are looking for a meeting that combines an exotic location with a fantastic fun faculty then no need to search any further then ABAM. The international flavors of aesthetics dashed with spices of different thought always create a savory taste of knowledge that won't leave you wanting more. Expect both your mind and spirit to be completely and utterly satiated.

Steve Dayan, M.D. -- USA

Renato Saltz and his colleagues and team coordinate not only a great educational meeting but also create an environment that allows unparalleled interaction among those attending. I think this is certainly now considered the premier aesthetic symposium that is held in a world class ski resort and yet really only about half of the people attending actually make it to the slopes!!!! That speaks volumes.

Randy Waldman, M.D. -- USA

Love it!!! Renato, I can't express how much u enjoyed this meeting professionally and socially. Thank you got including me and I am looking forward to participating next meeting!!!!!

Andrew Jacono, M.D. -- USA

Renato Saltz's dedication to providing cutting edge education in a warm friendly setting is evident in every aspect of the American Brazilian Aesthetic Meeting. As a dermatologist among plastic surgeons, I have felt welcome and appreciated from day one by faculty and attendees. The annual program is set up to not only build surgical and practice management skills, but also to instill values of mentorship and collegiality.

TESTIMONIALS FROM ABAM 2013 IN PARK CITY:

ABAM definitely draw a particularly special group of people — super smart and talented but also kind and without arrogance. As a non-plastic surgeon in the group, I was once again overwhelmed by the positive response of the rest of the faculty and attendees.

I know that it has been said that the measure of a successful meeting is that one comes away with a “pearl of knowledge or two”. In the case of the ABAM, attendees cam away with a pretty long strand of “pearls”.

The Scientific and Social Programs were outstanding with a high level Faculty. ABAM is growing up year after year, becoming stronger and better as the diamonds.

It was a great meeting scientifically but for me to meet all the friends from all around the world was even better.

Excellent scientific standards, fantastic events and dinners, wonderful ski conditions, and overall the possibility to meet old friends and make new during the meeting.

The meeting was outstanding and for the european guests as myself, it was very interesting to be updated on the most recent and sophisticated techniques of the American and Brazilian schools.

I had a great time, met wonderful people and this was by far one of the warmest and best organized meetings I've ever attended as a surgeon.

Excellent Meeting - Good Balance

ABAM 2012 in Florianopolis was one of my most memorable meetings. The scientific program was really great and due to the friendly athmosphere created by you and your collegues, both the presentations and discussions were held in a most sincere fashion and in some topics it was very instructive for me. I would like to congratulate you for your great effort and success in this organization and as a member of "Turkish Family" I am always ready for any kind of duty in these organizations conducted by you. I would like to thank you and Flavia for your friendship and hospitality in Brasil where I felt myself at home. Hope to see you in İstanbul.

Mehmet Bayramiçli -- Istanbul, Turkey

Thanks again for once again bringing together a great group of plastic surgeons to exchange ideas in such a beautiful place. This meeting continues to promote the international nature of our specialty. I look forward to seeing you all in Vancouver.

Mike Edwards -- Las Vegas, USA

Thanks to you and the organizing comittee, the recent ABAM Meeting was an educational and social success. The international presence allowed exchange of ideas and innovations and I was very honored to take part in the scientific program. It was a wonderful Brazilian experience with unequalled hospitality and natural beauty. My son and my daughter could not forget the beaches and their surf experience, so they started saving their allowences and learning Porteguese. They plan to go back and live in Florianopolis. If they are not settled by that time, I will join your next ABAM meeting in Park City.
